So where should you take your Next-Gen Ranger Raptor? South Africa has no shortage of amazing road trip destinations, but here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. The Garden Route: This scenic coastal drive stretches for nearly 300 kilometers along the southern coast of South Africa, from Mossel Bay to Storms River. You'll drive through picturesque towns, past pristine beaches, and alongside towering cliffs. Be sure to stop in the charming village of Knysna and visit the famous Knysna Heads.

  2. The Drakensberg Mountains: The rugged peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains offer some of the most spectacular scenery in South Africa. Drive through the Sani Pass, a steep mountain pass that connects South Africa and Lesotho, and take in the stunning views of the surrounding valleys.

  3. Kruger National Park: If you're looking for a true safari experience, there's no better place than Kruger National Park. With over 19,000 square kilometers of wilderness to explore, you'll have the opportunity to spot the Big Five (lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and buffaloes) and countless other species of wildlife.

No matter where you choose to go, the Next-Gen Ranger Raptor will get you there in style and comfort. So pack your bags, hit the road, and get ready for an unforgettable adventure in South Africa!
